NEW YORK (AP) _ 50 Cent has won an appeal concerning a dispute over his song “I Get Money.” An appeals court in New York agreed with a judge who rejected a copyright lawsuit filed by rapper Young Caliber against 50 Cent on the grounds that it was filed too late. It said Young Caliber brought his lawsuit after the three-year statute of limitations had expired. Young Caliber had sought unspecified damages because he said he bought the exclusive rights to a beat in 2006 that was used in “I Get Money” in 2007. 50 Cent’s attorney says the ruling vindicates his client. Young Caliber’s lawyer did not return a message seeking comment.
